We stayed last night at the Ramada Inn Airport/Cruise Port hotel in Fort Lauderdale and it was great! Rooms are large and clean, staff was friendly. There's a super pool, awesome restaurant in the hotel, tiki bar by the pool, entertainment Fri & Sat nights. It was $85 for the night and includes pickup at the airport and shuttle to the port, also a full HOT breakfast buffet. We liked it so much that we're staying there 2 nights when we go back in Nov. You can't go wrong with this one!
FYI - Will be in Ft. Lauderdale, 2 nights pre cruise, 4/18-19 (Fri/Sat)and they were firm at $165.00 per night. Decided to rent a car at the AP so will have more flexibilty with accomm. Found BW Oakland Park Inn for $93.00 + tax.
